May Day Seattle Style: The "Tax Amazon" Event at the Amazon Spheres

Covid put a new spin on May Day protests in Seattle. This year the Seattle city councilwoman Kshama Sawant organized the event around a "Tax Amazon" theme with a car caravan and "social distancing" touch.

(For more event photos, go to my May Day Amazon Album here.)

I don't have any experience capturing events, but I was asked to fill in at the last minute to cover this one. Here are a few of my shots.

I call this one "Salutations Jeff Bezos."

Another shot at Jeff Bezos.

Probably 50-75 cars circling the Seattle (Amazon) spheres in downtown Seattle, a couple dozen organizers and protesters circling on foot.

"Tax Amazon" was the theme, but as with most protests, it brought out a wide array of platforms.
